Ellsworth Adhesives Now Supplies the Latest in Reflective Optical Coatings


Reading time ( words)

Ellsworth Adhesives, a global distributor of adhesives, specialty chemicals and dispensing equipment, is pleased to announce that they now supply CI-2001 from Dow Corning, a silicone white reflective conformal coating used in the manufacturing of LED lamps and lighting assemblies.

CI-2001 is a highly reflective optical coating that enhances light output and efficiency in lighting applications with good resistance to the environment. Besides its highly reflective properties and resistance to aging and UV light, CI-2001 has many other characteristics that differentiate it from other reflective materials. Its low viscosity (1500 cP) enhances flow and fills in narrow gaps and spaces, plus it can be applied on a large variety of substrates, such as polycarbonate, aluminum and PMMA. It cures at room temperature to a tough, resilient non-tacky surface.

“CI-2001 is a great addition to our specialty chemical product line for LED assembly,” stated Roger Lee, Vice President and General Manager of Ellsworth Adhesives – North America. “It has some great features that can help transform how lighting is designed and assembled.”

The reflective coating has potential in multiple lighting applications including, but not limited to light boxes, laser cavities, remote sensing, back panel and back lighting assemblies, digital imaging, and coatings on printed circuit boards. CI-2001 is UL 94V0 recognized.

High-Reliability Interconnects for High-Power LED Assembly

02/03/2016 | Ravi M. Bhatkal, Ph.D., Alpha Assembly Solutions
New super-high and ultra-high-power LED package designs provide high lumen density that can enable significant system cost reductions through fewer LEDs, smaller PCBs, and smaller heat sink size requirements. This, however, puts significant performance demands on interconnects (solder joints in particular). This article talks about the role of high-reliability interconnects and where they fit in the LED lighting supply chain.
